There is a Polynesian saying, “standing on a whale, fishing for minnows.”
These days, people are fighting and searching for the truth, for reality and purpose, and unfortunately, most succumb to the brainwashing and propaganda of the New World Order and Cultural Marxism that fosters dysgenics* by teaching materialism, atheism (yes, I have been an atheist), and that all people are somehow, miraculously, and equally absurdly to any mature, intelligent adult, the same and equal in every way.
Joseph Campbell writes in one of his mind-expanding books, “There’s a story about Eisenhower. It was in his time that we began to realize what an important thing the computer was. He’s said to have gone into a room full of computers and put the question, ‘Is there a God?’
“The computers worked around and lights flashed and wheels turned and all that kind of thing. Finally, a voice came out and said, ‘Now there is.‘”
In my mind, there is no question that there is a God. 5,000 years before Christ, the Indians knew there was one. Most Western people don’t know that India enjoyed a thousand years of peace, in which the population focused on spiritual growth. No other country has ever done that. And only the Hindus believe that all religions worship the same God; they just give Him different names.
That is why the Polynesian saying is so appropriate; God’s children, who have direct access to him, are searching for a god. But religions have so distorted and perverted man’s understanding of God to suit their own selfish financial and political goals, so confusing are the historical contexts, models, temporal inflections, and metaphors of their religious books, that they seem out of date, inappropriate, irrelevant to the world we live in today.
Many religions use the fear of punishment and the promise of reward to manipulate and scare people to abide by their rules and laws and make their leaders indispensable intermediaries between the common man and God, and this, in today’s world, is increasingly revealing itself as pure exploitation and legalism, which is exactly what it is.
Man can fall on his knees at any time he chooses and acknowledge God and begin to learn about Him and the way in which he should live in order to be to be happy, fulfilled, joyful, and successful from any spiritual source or combination of sources he chooses. But falling for the immoral, debased Cultural Marxist propaganda of today is self-destructive.
If you want to know what behavioural, spiritual model works, which peoples are the most intelligent, and whom to learn from, open your eyes.
Look around the world at the racial groups, religions, countries, belief systems, philosophies, and spiritual beliefs with an open, objective, fearless mind, as would a traveler from space, and decide for yourself what makes sense, what works, what gets the best results, and whom to associate with and learn from. That is maturity; that is the mark of the true searcher. And if you seek, you will find that for which you earnestly seek. God is faithful.
A pumpkin that grows in a jar cannot possibly exceed the size of the jar, just like a fish in a small bowl. Many very religious (as opposed to spiritual) people are big fish in small, muddy ponds, and their arrogance is exceeded only by their ignorance, their passive aggression engendered by a sneaking suspicion that they’ve been conned. If your religion is based on the self-destructive philosophy of Altruism, you have very little to offer, since we can only teach what we know and understand.
I believe in can learn something from every religion and spiritual philosophy; to restrict my input means restricting my spiritual growth. I want to live optimally and aspire to my full potential, and with God’s loving guidance, I can.
*Dysgenics is the study of factors producing the accumulation and perpetuation of defective or disadvantageous genes and traits in offspring of a particular population or species. “Dysgenics” is the antonym of “eugenics”. If society subsidizes and interbreeds with low IQ, low achievement, high violence populations, in the end, such populations will dominate, and determine the human future — or lack of it.
